In 1976, I discovered the Star Trek Text game using a local college computer terminal onto a Honeywell main-frame time-sharing system, and as a big Trecky, I had to play and know how it worked, this is where I first learned the BASIC programming language. Over the years, I converted it to the C language and later to the Java language but it still required a keyboard for all game input.

In 2012, I added the visual controls and now have a portable Android smartphone and tablet user-interface that makes the game fun to play without the keyboard.
